Now running Mandrake10 and all is well.. almost!
supermount has been good about mounting my USB-key drive, but leaves
"removable", "removable2", "removable3" .etc on my desktop .. forever !
These entries cannot be seen from ~/Desktop/ but are cluttering up
/mnt/. They are owned by root, but root cannot delete them 
(Cannot remove directory "/mnt/removable2" device or resource busy (16))

Something is amiss !

My fstab entries;
none /mnt/removable supermount
dev=/dev/scsi/host3/bus0/target0/lun0/part1,fs=ext2:vfat,--,umask=0,iocharset=iso8859-1,kudzu,codepage=850 0 0
none /mnt/removable2 supermount
dev=/dev/scsi/host4/bus0/target0/lun0/part1,fs=ext2:vfat,--,umask=0,iocharset=iso8859-1,kudzu,codepage=850 0 0
none /mnt/removable3 supermount
dev=/dev/scsi/host1/bus0/target0/lun0/part1,fs=ext2:vfat,--,umask=0,iocharset=iso8859-1,kudzu,codepage=850 0 0
yield no clues to me.
I hesitate to swing the rm machete through /dev

any ideas what I might be doing wrong ?
